My Honest Maybelline Sky High Mascara Review 2024

We were always going to write a Maybelline Sky High mascara review. It’s the number one bestselling mascara in the UK, and TikTok’s most viral beauty product ever – no mean feat, since the platform can send a beauty product stratospheric in the bat of a perfectly-framed eye.

Type the hashtag “skyhighmascara” into TikTok, and you’ll see that it has over 1.3 billion views (!), from the thousands of videos rolling in from users who are still – despite the amount of time that has passed since its launch – flawed by its ability to lengthen lashes and provide dramatic volume. For a very affordable price, may we add. And that’s before we even get started on the second iteration: Sky High Cosmic Black, which is just as much of a sensation, creating drama and volume with an even more intense pigment.

The Amazon Spring Sale is officially here (it’s started at midnight on March 20th and ends at 23:59 March 25th), and Maybelline Sky High Mascara has been reduced by a impressive 23% as one of the shopping giant’s most epic Big Deals Day beauty discounts. That makes it less than £10. So, we thought it a good time to bless you with our full Maybelline Sky High Mascara review, to help you decide whether to take the plunge. (Spoiler: you should).

Maybelline Sky High Mascara – The GLAMOUR Road Test:

Praise where it’s due, it’s definitely worth the attention. The wand, which is long, conical and plastic, is nice and bendy to get in at tricky angles. The brush is densely packed with straight bristles to comb through each and every lash from root to tip. This elongates and coats lashes, while preventing clumping (essential, if you want to apply several layers). Then there’s the formula itself, which is infused with bamboo extract and fibres to add some extra length and volume without weighing lashes down.

I have medium-long lashes and one coat (see above) made them ultra fluttery and defined, while still looking natural. A couple of coats gave me insanely long lashes, earning it a spot in my makeup bag (which given I’ve tried dozens of mascaras for my job, doesn’t happen very often).
